While childhood obesity has been getting lots of attention in recent years, Stretch-n-Grow has been aware of the issue and providing a solution since 1992.  We are the world's largest network of children's fitness professionals and have taught millions of children world-wide the importance of healthy habits.

“The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared obesity ‘a global epidemic’ and experts agree that childhood obesity must be curtailed.  The Stretch-n-Grow program teaches preschool and elementary aged children to make healthy food choices and love exercise, starting at an early age,” states President and Founder, Jill Manly.
